No minimum length for Toslink

In recent correspondence with the fine folks at Lifatech regarding application of their glass fiber Toslink cabling, the following arose, you may want to file it away for future reference:

"I am not aware of any minimum length for Toslink. We have made some in the ~6" range for connections between portable devices. The only risk there is bending the cable too tightly right at the connectors which could potentially break fibers, however short of physical damage I did not have anyone report degraded sound quality with a cable that size."

These guys seem to know everything there is about engineering optical fiber cable.
